Check the fuse, transistors, solder joints (use magnifier), caps. Or replace the board if the lamps are good after testing.

If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Hello,

The power supply in the unit has died. This is a very common problem with this series of monitor after 2-3 years of use. If you can solder then you should be able to do the repair yourself. Check out our step by step repair guide posted on our site at: www.ccl-la.com Our guide gives parts values and location information as well as how to open the unit up. If you don't feel like doing the repair we also offer repair services, see our web site for details.

LCD Monitor Blank/Non-Responsive - Dell E173FPC


Next thing I would check is the VGA cable between PC and monitor.

Make sure is in at both ends and if possible try another one.

Do the Dell Menus come up with no VGA cable plugged in? Is the light amber? Flashing or static?

Dell E173FPc monitor. Screen is black, power button color cycles


Hi,
First, verify the monitor is functional.
Monitor STFC (Self Test Feature Check)
Turn off the monitor
Plug the monitor power cord directly into the wall socket to remove any
surge protectors or APCs from the troubleshooting equation
Unplug the monitor video cable from the back of the computer
Turn on the monitor
The floating dialog box should appear on screen against a black background.
If the issue appears during the STFC, the monitor is defective.
What are the results please?

That is a slightly different power supply board if it is the one I am thinking of.l It is similar in style but there is a 1000mf 16v capacitor that once you replace it it will work.
